    I've looked and researched and do not seem to find a way to simply merge duplicate contacts. Yahoo mail has a quick, merge duplicate contacts program that runs easily through you contacts, groups them for you and will delete all duplicates. Due to sync'ing etc, I know have over 4,000 contacts some with 71 listing for the same person. Surely, apple has an easy for this that I'm missing. Any help to a newbe would be greatly appreciated.
    Thanks!

    I had the same issue and merged the duplicates on the computer. That was the only way I could find to fix the issue. I use a Mac so I am not sure what the steps would be on a PC. From a Mac open contacts at the top select "card" then select "look for duplicates". Once you do that the computer will perform a merge and all will be right again.

    Hopefully this helps with your situation.
